The concentration and distribution of a drug and its metabolites in tissues are key factors for elucidating both drug efficacy and toxicity in drug development. In this study we developed a pharamaco-imaging procedure for 12 agents and investigated the relationship between the properties of target compounds and the sensitivities of detection in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-mass spectrometer imaging (MALDI-MSI). We prepared mock samples with mouse liver homogenates diluted with gelatin solution, limit of detection concentrations of each compound was confirmed. Read More
